Shai Lustgarten, CEO, commented “Our core legacy business services the needs of many of the world’s largest companies. While we remain confident in our continued success and the opportunities ahead, these large companies were more cautious, took more time to make decisions and pushed out orders as they were faced with the challenges of an uncertain economy over the last several months. This caused a temporary delay in receiving several large orders resulting in a $4M decrease in Q2 revenue vs 2022. Despite these challenges in the quarter, we continued to make significant advancements which provide us the ability to reach our yearly objectives and long-term growth plans.

Our dedicated team worked tirelessly throughout the quarter to provide excellent customer service and actively pursue numerous substantial new contracts. We are confident that these efforts will yield positive results soon, more than compensating for the $4 million decrease.

We continue to witness robust demand for our AI systems in the United States, South America and the Middle East which resulted in an overall AI revenue increase of 91%. Our Q-Shield, Safe City system has exhibited impressive success, fostering safer environments and generating increased revenues upon deployment. Currently, we have 15 additional cities eagerly anticipating the implementation of this system. As we ventured into a new industry with groundbreaking technology, we encountered several learning curves and navigated unexpected regulatory demands. We are pleased to inform you that these challenges are being successfully addressed. We anticipate a swifter pace of deployments for the additional 16 cities and continued positive pace of new contracts moving forward.

In our ongoing commitment to financial responsibility, we have continued with significant cost-cutting efforts in SG&A, resulting in a substantial reduction of expenses by $1.7 million. This aligns with our ongoing efforts to achieve positive EBITDA.

We are excited about our recent announcement regarding the definitive agreement for Tadiran Telecomm, and we are working on regulatory requirements to conclude the closing. Pending approval, upon closure, this acquisition will significantly enhance OMNIQ’s market positioning, adding robust technology to our product portfolio.”
